Actually op should've had a comeback! Like:" the reason why my mother married you was because we needed another spender in our family! Money come first, step dad!" -> even though i hate the idea of saying it but assholes like that step-father should be kicked in the nuts
I think I'm the only one who thinks that OP deserved it. I'm sorry but if he told his step dad what he thought of him, it probably wasn't a good thing, and most likely elicited that snap response. I try to ere on the side of caution, but I really think that people treating OP as a Saint is just a failure. Yes, cater to his emotions, because step dads have none...
he can't know that and besides you don't need to listen to people who tell you those kind of things!
3, When adults are respectful they deserve to be respected, just like any other person on the planet regardless of age. But as someone who was verbally abused by a step-parent for years, I know that adults sometimes need someone to tell them that their behavior is wrong and unfair. Telling the step-parent exactly how they felt seems perfectly acceptable in this situation, especially since the step-father responded in the way he did.
Most adults I know don't even have the intelligence to match their confidence. They approach ME looking for a debate, to which I oblige, which I usually end up getting a suspension for because apparently they have no clue what the ekpyrotic theory is nor do they know the basis for the evidence of evolution and quantum physics. Adults don't automatically deserve to be respected. Only the respectful should be respected.
So OP's stepfather's an asshole and you don't think she/he should stand up for him/herself? That's bullshit. At least they had the balls to stand up to their stepfather! I think you'd change your tune if you were in a situation like OP's, number 3. And f**k you for acting like adults are perfect and deserve absolute respect. If you give respect, you get respect. That's just the way it goes. A lot of adults today are too illiterate to even have a logical conversation or reason with. Also, put a shirt on, good grief.
Apparently this man treated her like an asshole, because no nice or well behaved person would say that. I'm all for respecting your elders, but only when they respect you. There is no way I'm going to hide or deny my feelings because someone is older than me. If this person felt some type of way, then she had a right to express it because he is not her father, and he shouldn't get away with treating her like shit. I hope he left her life too, because she doesn't need that at all. Oh, and you're an asshat.
You obviously have parents who loved you. You were special enough that you were chosen to be their child.
Who the hell has the audacity to say something like that? Oh yeah, op's step dad...
